Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries have become some of the most active M&A markets this year. The unprecedented economic growth driven by government policies, crude oil demand, and investment in tourism, sports, infrastructure, and technology are all playing a part in cementing Saudi Arabia as an attractive market to investors and dealmakers. 

How will Saudi Arabia’s growth and ambitious goals fuel M&A in 2023?
